Photographing the Imaginary: Newt Scamander & More

If you’ve seen or read Fantastic Beasts, you know that Newt Scamander is a pleasantly awkward, inquisitive character who is always up for an adventure to rescue “his” animals or those he deems it’s his responsibility to protect.  When working with this image, I wanted to show that Newt was doing something possibly dangerous while remaining…

Photographing the Imaginary: Vladimir Snape & Evercrumbly & Witch

If you’re familiar with my photography, then you well know that I love the post processing part.  And at MISTI-Con, I was well able to stretch my imagination by utilizing a seamless black background, some gels, and great models. This week on my stream Photographing the Imaginary, I was able to show off how to get from…

This past weekend I took some time to myself and enjoyed the nice, long trip to Laconia, NH to go to MISTI-Con, a Harry Potter cosplay event.  This was my first purposeful trip into New Hampshire (I get absurdly lost sometimes) and I fell in love with the scenic trip so much that I was…

Working with the Community

Every now and then I get to work with a pair of actors from the National Theater for Children.  I’ll be following this duo through part of May, between sessions for Chronotography and MISTI-Con. If you’re in Long Island, we should be in your kid’s school! Keep an eye out!

What do you mean the weekend is over?

This is what happens when you tell the Fæ that Humans can only experience time once, and not go back to experience things, but through memory and photos.  See? They’re very upset by this. Want to relive the weekend, or see things you missed the first time around?  You may visit my gallery here (Website…
